I did not understand the plan with the singing - could you please explain it to me again?
Thanks for the session today. As per Yas' suggestion to learn to concentrate during the practice and still the mind, I will do the program without using the recording, and skipping the Beatha breathing. In case anyone else wants to try it too, here is the breathing count for each part:
-12 times hands around the belly
-12 times hands around the chest
-7 times hands behind the shoulders
A 1-minute break between rounds. Inhale for 6 seconds, hold for 3 seconds, exhale for 9 seconds, hold for 3 seconds.
12 consecutive breaths. About 1-2 seconds inhaling and exhaling quickly.
30 seconds break between rounds.
Prayer of the soul:
In the audio Laura repeats it 6 times and then leaves about 15 minutes of instrumental to relax.
Good truck! :)
It is only six times with the shoulders Cantera, not seven. That makes a total of 30 which is the requested number by the C's when Laura et al were discussing what would later be known as E.E. with the C's. I have just tried to find that session but my search fu has failed, sorry.
How to practice Éiriú Eolas in your daily life
If you only have 5 to 10 minutes, do some light stretching and Warrior’s Breath to clear out stale air.
If you have 15 minutes, do light stretches, Three Stage breathing with three counted Pipe Breaths at each stage and Warrior’s Breath.
If you have 30 minutes, do the full Three Stage Breathing protocol and Warrior’s Breath. If you still have a few minutes, do one repeat of the Prayer of the Soul.
Try to do the Prayer of the Soul Meditation every day, using pipe breathing at the beginning. This will enhance the detoxification of your body, mind and emotions as well as improving your sleep.
If you have 45 minutes, we highly recommend following the entire program once a week, and twice if possible. For that, you may want to play the breathing and meditation audio, which will guide you through all the exercises.
You can choose whatever time of day you wish to do the program. In the morning, it will help you start the day full of energy and without stress. In the evening, it will allow you to recover from your daily activities and improve your sleep. But the most important thing is that you practice regularly! You will then benefit from its full life-changing effect.
There was a suggestion to sing together after finishing the program that came up during a meeting when I wasn't there. Maybe @logos5x5 can chime in and give us an idea of what was the original idea.
What we decided during our last meeting, yesterday, is that we can start with a song that isn't very complicated and known by almost everyone, so I suggested Amazing Grace. So, on our next meeting, we can try singing that song together after practicing the program. Just one song, one time... that's basically it.

I won’t be able to stay back for the singing part every time as for us in Australia it’s in the mid morning, and on my days off I have a bunch of stuff to get done afterwards (it’s also why I tend not to be able to chat for long afterwards). But where possible, I’ll be happy to join in
What do you think?
